Wow, I took my son and two sons in law fishing while in Sooke on a family vacation. Great way to spend the better part of a day with amazing scenery, good fun, a great captain (Pat) and 8 big salmon. It was such a cool outing and we all highly recommend Pat and the experience. Cheers Pat!

My husband and I made our way to the coast for the first time with friends. What a beautiful place! We got a little lost so early in the morning but did finally make our way to Pat (our guide) on the dock in Sooke. What an experience! We caught a couple good sized salmon and lost a smaller one. Pat was great. Very informative and humorous. He was very laid-back as he handed the fishing pole over to each of my husband and then me. Such an experience! It really is Beautiful British Columbia! Thanks Pat. Suzanne and Ted

Bluefin fishing with Pat was a wonderful experience. Firstly, Pat was clearly a professional and he was always busy cleaning lines and checking the bait. He also took us well out of Sooke Harbour, whereas many boats simply stay at the mouth of the harbour. We came home with 2 Coho and 1 Chinook and Pat also gave us some crabs from the trap he put out. We felt like we did pretty well given the general chatter that there were no boats and after seeing and hearing a few boats coming back empty we felt pretty good. Definitely happy with this choice!

We could not have asked for a better day...weather wise it was perfect, Patrick's humour was right on the money and we took home some beautiful chinook salmon and crabs. What a feast! Thanks Pat!

As a newbie fisher-woman, it was great to know, I didn't have to do anything or have anything, I just had to show up and I was almost guaranteed to bring home fish. Ok, lazy bones here. But you can help out and jump in anytime you want. Captain Pat was well-equipped, extremely knowledgeable, always working the line, and checking that all was well, whilst also being patient and friendly with us city folks.
